Dare to C.A.R.E

Caring about your heart is an important first step to managing heart and vascular disease. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States.

Vascular disease, or blockages of the arteries that carry blood to and from the heart, can lead to stroke, amputation or even death. The good news is that vascular disease can be prevented or managed with early detection. That is why we have launched Dare to C.A.R.E., a vascular screening program that will help you understand your risk.

Early treatment and prevention are key to living a healthier and enjoyable life. Dare to C.A.R.E. is a complimentary heart and vascular disease education and screening program provided by the Adventist Heart & Vascular Institute and the Heart Health Foundation.

The screening
 
C.A.R.E. stands for:

  • Carotid Artery Disease: responsible for at least 300,000 strokes a year.
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms: the third leading cause of sudden death in men over 60.
  • Renal Artery Stenosis: affecting over 5 million Americans.
  • Extremity Artery Disease: affecting over 10 million Americans.

At your appointment, the vascular technologist will conduct a painless 15-minute, non-invasive ultrasound of your neck, abdomen and legs to screen for carotid artery disease, abdominal aortic aneurysm and extremity artery disease. Results will be shared with you as well as sent to your doctor so you can decide on a treatment plan that works best for you, if necessary. Screenings are a no-cost, no-obligation way to learn more about your heart health.

Screenings are currently offered in Calistoga and Clearlake.

Are you eligible?
Dare to C.A.R.E. provides free vascular screenings to any patient over the age of 60, or over age of 50 with certain risk factors for heart and vascular disease, including smoking, diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol.
